Monumental reflections..



Yesterday was the perfect winters day, chilly with crisp blue skies. On the way home from South Perth we stopped to take some photos in John Oldham Park. Named after landscape architect John Oldham it really is an oasis surrounded by traffic mayhem! The park sits between the Mounts Bay Road and Kwinana Freeway interchange but clever planting design by M. Oldham ensures a serene experience. I'll show you more! The reflections above of the State War Memorial up in Kings Park were taken looking over Mounts Bay Rd. Hope the sun shines down on whatever you get up to :) this weekend, take care...

  25. We could use some of your cool air here. Like most folks, we don't have air conditioning so it's a real challenge to "capture" the cooler air at night and keep the hotter out during the day. Your photos look very relaxing. I'll try to hold that thought today.
